Since 1952, Anglesea SLSC has been an active member of the local community, patrolling the beaches, providing sport and recreation, skill development and offering frontline first aid and emergency services.
ASLSC has over 2,000 members, the largest amongst Victorian clubs and is at the forefront of lifesaving services, having established an innovative patrolling service, Anglesea Surf Rescue and many other initiatives such as the Starfish nipper program which is being implemented by many clubs around Australia. Each summer club members perform between 10 and 30 rescues and over 400 preventative actions.
ASLSC runs Victoria’s largest Nipper (age 6 to 13) programs with over 600 participants taking place in January with additional activities throughout the year. This program is complimented with specific development programs for our 14 to 17-year-old members to assist their integration into the senior area of the Club.
ASLSC is also recognised at both the state and national level as a premier competition club with Gold Medals and numerous finalists at the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships over the past 35 years and we have also performed well on the international stage with gold medals in a number of disciplines at the World Championships.
